Ben Thompson's wife has paid tribute to her 'kind and loving' husband.
Police have confirmed the body found in the River Ely on Tuesday was that of the missing rugby fan.
Losing Ben has left us all devastated but finding him on Tuesday has answered many unanswered questions and given us the chance to say our goodbyes.
Somehow we must now move on with our lives and ask to be allowed to grieve in peace for such a kind and loving man.
We wish to thank Ben’s friends and colleagues for their support and South Wales Police for their efforts in searching for Ben.
